Jonathan Fernando González González was born on 12 May 1981 in Santiago. In 1997, at the age of 16, he suffered a gunshot wound that resulted in him becoming tetraplegic (C4); he is therefore permanently dependent on a wheelchair. After the accident he went to the Teletón rehabilitation centre, where he tried to paint for the first time holding a brush with his mouth. This was how he discovered his passion for art. As a result, his mental life started to change and became filled with emotions that he wanted to capture on canvas. The mouth painter has already participated in many different exhibitions and art workshops in his area.
